Region 2 Readmission Learning Collaborative – Quarterly Meeting

Good Afternoon Sir/Ma’am:

The next Readmissions Learning Collaborative quarterly update meeting is scheduled on July 17th, 2015 [see agenda]. This meeting will be held in conjunction with the RHP 2 Category 3 work session at UTMB Health Galveston, TX.
In February 17th, 2015, UTMB hosted the first conference call between SE Texas region health plans and RHP 2 readmission collaborative providers. During the call, HHSC encouraged Medicaid-CHIP health plan case managers and their counterparts in Region 2 DSRIP projects to become partners in case management. Therefore, the RHP 2 Anchor’s office is extending an invitation to several SE Texas region Medicaid-CHIP Health Plan case managers to attend this meeting and share how health plans and RHP 2 providers could better collaborate. They are being asked to provide specifics on super-utilizers case management and how RHP 2 providers can best access their Health Plan programs. Additionally, Tiffany Champagne, PhD, with the Greater Houston Health Connect will be in attendance and will briefly discuss how to better align case managers in the SE Texas region. This initiative will enhance communication with Health Plan case managers and assist Region 2 DSRIP project providers to better manage their patients.
Here is the Readmission Collaborative meeting information:
